Cornerback Joe Haden tweeted on Saturday, saying that he will be playing on Monday night when the Steelers play the Cincinnati Bengals.

Haden left last week’s game vs. the Bills in the 4th quarter to be evaluated for a possible concussion.

He was then in the league’s concussion protocol, but was left clear of this week’s injury report.

The Steelers started the season 11-0, but have lost their last two games.
